What should your child be doing?
• Children should aim for 60 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity a day across the week • Reduce the time spent sitting or lying down. Aim to spread activity throughout the day. All activities should make you breathe faster and feel warmer
One way to tell if you're working at a moderate intensity level is if you can still talk, but not sing. Examples of moderate intensity activities: •Walking to school
•Riding a scooter
•Football •Walking the dog
•Cycling •ULTIMATE KIDS CAMP!!
